However, GCC is essentially the very same compiler on both, Linux and
Windows (as well as any other OS GCC supports), so Xmega patches that
are used to build the Windows toolchain should apply without problems
also for Linux.  The only thing is there's no Atmel-provided Linux
toolchain as a binary distribution.

OTOH, you could consider that a value: while (most) Windows users
never really learn that they are eligible to also compile that stuff
from source (with the option to possibly modify the source if they
found a bug that really annoys them), you'll eventually know how to do
that. ;-)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
